Situational Analysis – March 26, 2021

Hello there Friday. Today is Epilepsy Awareness Day, a day to recognize the 50 million people worldwide who are affected by this neurological disorder. Epilepsy impacts the central nervous system and causes seizures and other symptoms. The types of seizures vary depending on the cause and type of epilepsy, and sometimes no known cause can be found. Epilepsy is not contagious and any age group can develop it. Wear purple today to show your support for people with epilepsy and those who love and support them.
